Sports Executive
    (January 5, 1948- )
    Born in Saint-Hubert-de-Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec, Canada
    President of the Quebec Nordiques (1972-95)
    He refused to address the English media coverage problems for the team in Quebec City.
    He presided over some of the most dreadful teams in NHL history.
    He lured Guy Lafleur out of retirement to play for his team.
    He was involved in a year long saga with Eric Lindros and his parents when he told the media he planned to draft the latter, despite his objections.
    In wake of the Lindros controversy, he started another one when he claimed to trade Lindros to both Philadelphia and New York in multi-player deals.
    In order to clean up the mess he caused, an arbitrator ruled in favor of the multi-player package the Flyers were offering.
    When he claimed he was losing money, he went to the provincial government for a bailout.
    He balked at the offer the Quebec government offered him, opting to sell the team to a group from Denver, Colorado instead.
    He purchased the team from a group of San Francisco businessmen prior to the start of the 1972-73 season.
    He was instrumental in the talks that saw his franchise become part of the NHL merger.
    He risked his life trying to negotiate a deal which saw future Hall-of-Famer Peter Stastny and his brothers Anton and Marian defect from communist Czechoslovakia to play for the Nordiques.
    Despite being the second smallest market in North America and playing in the same province as the storied Montreal Canadiens, he was able to make NHL hockey succeed in Quebec City despite trying odds.
    He was successful in acquiring prospect Peter Forsberg in the Lindros trade.
    He molded the team into a gradual Stanley Cup contender prior to selling the team.
    He was inducted into both the Order of Canada (1993) and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame (1999).
